Just this weekend I was lounging out by the pool, enjoying the sun and a few Modelos when I realized that the summer isn’t just about taking it easy. It’s a time that marks the graduation of so many of our young students popping out of all of those colleges thinking they know everything, blithely throwing their tams in the air and having them float in slow motion (if movies are to be believed). It’s a stressful time where newly unemployed members of our society panic after realizing that they should have been setting up careers back during sophomore year.
And it looks like Fox Searchlight wants to explore that world – the moment that you go from being the top of your class to being the bottom rung in the food chain – and they have a trailer to prove it:
Post Grad looks a little stock and trade, but I have the feeling that something more could be lurking beneath the surface. There’s a ton given away about the story within the trailer, but there’s definitely two distinct romance possibilities, a greater issue of discovering personal limitations and triumphs, and most of all, it’ll be cool to see the question of what happens after college for a ton of students explored. Then again, it could just be the average run-of-the-mill, simple comedy.
Either way, it’s good to Alexis Bledel looking almost grown up for a change. And, yes, you did see Demetri Martin near the middle there.
What do you think?
